I took this picture a couple of weeks ago in a small piece of woodland that I visit often on my walks. I have taken some beautiful self portrait pictures here and some lovely shots of female friends who wanted their picture taken. Over the last 6 months I have watched this space transform from autumn to winter and into spring again. I have sat quietly here and watched a deer wander by. It has been a beautiful and peaceful place for me.
Yesterday I returned there yet again, it is a favourite place for me, and was shocked to discover that nearly all the trees have been felled and the Bluebells trampled under foot. The place has been decimated. This beautiful tranquil spot has been raped by man and I stood in the middle of what had been a very special place for me and cried. So this picture is both happy and sad for me. Happy because I found this place and have some lovely memories I shall treasure and sad because someone couldn’t appreciate or value it’s beauty over their monetary gain.
What a beautiful photo but with such a sad story
It looks magical there, sorry it has been ruined for you. Big hugs x
oh gosh that is so sad and I can understand how you must feel devastated for it not to be there anymore as it was such a happy place for you. xx #thegallery
so sad about the story… Lovely and fabulous picture as a remembrance!
I’m so sorry it’s caused sadness- your photos is gorgeous- glad you have the memories, sorry it’s been taken away. #thegallery
This really is a stunning picture and it’s so sad that this place doesn’t exist anymore. I can imagine your tears when you discovered this.
That’s just crazy.. It’s good that you got a great remembrance of the place.. I think that’s why I take so many pictures–you never know when thing will change.
I really fail to understand people at times…
Il looks like such a magical place. xx
that’s so sad Molly, such a crying shame – looks like a truly special place.. Beautiful photo x
It’s beautiful and so sad it’s gone. Same thing happened in my own forest. Someone destroyed the nature trail.
That is a beautiful photo, what a shame that it has been ruined by people who don’t think before they act. #thegallery
Such a sad story, but the picture is simply beautiful!
We talked about this on twitter the other day and I felt that I had to comment. I would be – no, I am – so angry (as I suspect you are) that such beauty has been destroyed.
